Full Description

This workshop led by Lynne Fugard will build through an invigorating sequence, strengthening and opening the body in preparation for a deliciously deep backbend practice. Using props and partner work there will be time to break down and work towards those more challenging backbends from the yoga asana practice – including standing, seated, balancing and inverted poses – leaving you plenty of ideas to take back to your self-practice and weekly classes. Together, we will explore safe and supported ways to extend and expand, finding space, breath and ease in these deep postures without risk of injury. All that’s left is to enjoy the uplifting, empowering energetic, emotional and physical benefits backbends can bring.

As potent antidotes to our forward-facing, desk-ridden lives, these transformative poses strengthen around the spine, enhancing posture and breath-capacity, all whilst lifting the mood, stimulating the nervous system, and clarifying the mind.
